Read the First Three Chapters of Shadow Prowler by Alexey Pehov

Alexey Pehov's Shadow Prowler has become one of 2010's anticipated books on blogosphere. Now, thanks to Simon & Schuster UK's generosity, you can read the first three chapters (45 pages) of the book and decide whether it is your type of book. It certainly sounds like the type of epic fantasy that I'll enjoy very much.

Shadow Provler is the first book of Chronicles of Siara series. Published in the US 3 weeks ago, it will come out in the UK on April 1st (Nope! It's not a joke! It is real!).


After centuries of calm, the Nameless One is stirring. An army is gathering: giants, ogres and other creatures joining forces from across the Desolate Lands, united for the first time in history under one black banner. By the spring, or perhaps sooner, the Nameless One and his forces will be at the walls of the great city of Avendoom.

Unless Shadow Harold, master thief, can find some way to stop them.

Epic fantasy at its best, Shadow Prowler is the first in a trilogy that follows Shadow Harold on his quest for a magic Horn that will restore peace to the Kingdom of Siala. Harold will be accompanied on his quest by an Elfin princess, Miralissa, her elfin escort, and ten Wild Hearts, the most experienced and dangerous fighters in their world…and by the king’s court jester (who may be more than he seems…or less).

Reminiscent of Moorcock's Elric series, Shadow Prowler is the first work to be published in English by the bestselling Russian fantasy author Alexey Pehov. The book was translated by Andrew Bromfield, best known for his work on the highly successful Night Watch series.
